I re-checked mine. It says "Almost standards mode doctype" before the "Expected..." part. ALMOST? C'mon, FF, give us a hint. Missing a space? Extra space? LF alone where you expected CRLF? Also re-checked with the validator; no complaints.
"Transitional" is an oddly chosen word anyway. It doesn't really mean "on the way from point A to point B", it simply means "you're allowed to put things in the HTML that we'd prefer to see in CSS". That means, for example, you can say <blahblah align = "center"> where Strict would insist on <blahbalh style = "text-align: center";> using twice as many words to achieve identical results. Please do not deduce from this that I ever, at any time, under any circumstances, use <font> tags. Let's be reasonable.
